The Daily News

By Scott DeSmit

An animal rights group has released a mini-documentary detailing efforts to stop a squirrel-hunting contest in the village of Holley earlier this year.

Friends of Animals last week released the six minute, 41-second video showing "the horrifying behavior of the Squirrel Slam hunters and supporters," said FOA president Edita Birnkrant.

Birnkrant said the video is part of the group's ongoing effort to ban all animal-killing contests.

This squirrel hunt is an annual fundraiser for the Fire Department of Holley NY. It is the 7th Annual Squirrel Slam and occurred on February 16, 2013. However, in actuality, this is a mass squirrel-killing contest in which children & adults are awarded cash & gun prizes for killing the heaviest squirrels. Friends of Animals and its supporters were there to protest the event.
